ON A CANVAS BY THE SEA


The sun sojourns briefly
I see them vaguely
Haunting images
Of history
On a canvas by the sea

Blending in
With mists
of today
With shades of grey
Dividing and uniting
Lost worlds
Lost voices
Of my roots

A sudden wave
Compels my soul
I hear the grace of tongues
From the other side
They have found me
And in this brief moment
Of parting mists
I am left with no choice
But to listen
And watch
As the dusk awakens the lakes

The veil is thin
